    I can't believe you get offended by this.

    "Home run: The act of hitting a baseball out of the field of play between the foul poles. While baseball fans used to delight in keeping track of how many home runs a player could hit, Major League Baseball decided in 2018 there was too much controversy in honoring the career home record in an era of escalating performance enhancers. Thus, every outfield fence became 900 feet tall."

    Do they hate baseball? Are they BASHING it? The truly funny part is how easily people get their feelings hurt in this forum.

    Agreed. Are people upset because he used MLS as one of the extinct leagues?

    I'm just upset I wasted 5 seconds of my life skimming that thing. He gets published?

    I should get out of IT and into "sports humor".

    Possibly, since it is the only one listed that actually is a real league.

    We've tried just ignoring them, but that doesn't seem to be working. Why is it that we let the clowns run our circus?

    He was better off providing a succinct summary than allowing for more unique page hits for that guy.

    I don't even bother clicking anymore... they're not worthy of my ad revenue. ;)

    That guy actually got paid for writing that stuff. It read like a high school homework paper...

    Hard to believe huh? He was actually paid to write that! I'm going to become very unpopular for what I'm about to post & chance's are get some nice little personal messages' but in my opinion the clubs' of the MLS as well as the US mens' national team should use the US womens' national team as a bench mark to build off of & learn from. Those ladies' play very well, in most cases' better than the men in the MLS as well as the US mens' team!:rolleyes:

    I think you're overreacting. The guys doesn't only bash MLS, he bashes MLB as well. And quite honestly, I found the Beckham comment to be funny. He has every right to make fun of MLS because it created the Beckham circus.
